Today we went to this really cool noise/drone-and-productivity performance at Little Spot Cafe at 23rd and South Van Ness, where a guy had a whole bunch of modular synths and played while we were able to work on things and carry on conversations.
I sketched a picture of a Dunmer Farmer, as a study for a future comic I have in mind.
I brought my drawing board and paper in case I wanted to sketch people from life – to keep up the momentum from my drawing class – but instead I decided to sketch a character from imagination (as I usually end up doing). However, next weekend I will be able to attend the figure drawing session at Mission and Cesar Chavez next weekend, so I will still be able to keep the momentum going.
Today was the last day of my drawing class 🙁
I’ll miss looking forward to the bike ride and drawing every Saturday morning… and I’m already looking through their course catalog for another drawing class to take, because I do feel like I got a lot out of it.
I see that they’ve announced a digital drawing class that starts in September… I feel like I really need to take that one! Digital drawing software is so powerful and amazing and yet so inscrutable… and I really want to get the hang of it.
In the meantime I feel like I should also take a summer course to keep the momentum going, though.

As you already know, I had “Mark” set to Aryon’s chambers in Tel Vos, which I’m sure Aryon wasn’t exactly thrilled about. But on top of that, I had “Recall” as one of my hotkeys, and I can’t tell you how many times I was fighting some monster and accidentally cast “Recall” whilst trying to cast “Fireball,” and ended up in the middle of Aryon’s chambers mid-combat.
And it was always something stupid like a Kagouti. Although one time I was in the middle of a huge sunken dungeon I was exploring and I had made so much progress and then – FWOOSH! I was inches away from Aryon who was saying “A warm welcome to you!” and I howled with rage and anguish right into his face.
I eventually took Recall out of my hotkeys, which gave me much relief. And I think Aryon appreciated the change, as well – no more Steen popping into his chambers at all hours, screaming and sweating with the fury of battle.
